radical outfits haver to mmted mali. they've destroyed shrines, impose period sahria law and stoned people who come in their wake. now, mali was once considered one of the few stable democracies in africa, and mali's capital would normally have been able to counteract these insurgents. but the government tripped up this year. a coup took place in march. in the aftermath, soldiers deserted the army. there are reports many even sold their equipment for money. so mali is essentially defenseless. last month the interim president called on the security council to help. seems increasingly likely there will be some military intervention. already a regional group called ecowas, economic community of west african states, is pulling together a small army. france is leading the calls for action. it has submitted a proposal to the u.n. for malayan soldier to be trained by the european union. those soldiers will then join a few thousand ecowas troops to retake northern mali. remember, mali was a french colony until 1960. france continues to have trade interests in the region. what about washingt

i have it right here. keep in mind, this was done based on current law, which assumes the bush tax cuts expire at the end of the year. they concluded that revenue neutral tax reform would permit a 4% decrease in all ordinary income tax rates. now, that's not close to 20%. now, let's get to the second thing. adding more than $2 trillion to defense spending. according to analysis conducted money, romney will add $2.1 trillion in defense spending over a decade. now, as "the washington post" recently noted, they think romney's plan is better for the nation's defense needs, but he still hasn't said how he'll pay for it. let's give everyone here the map. we have $5 trillion in tax cuts, plus $2 trillion. now, if romney can make that $5 trillion tax cut revenue neutral, he's still spending at least 2 trillion. again, our debt, which is growing every minute, is about $16 trillion right now. so, romney has to find some massive cuts to pay for his promises before he can tackle our nation's greatest security threat. now, to be fair, he has some ideas for cuts. on his campaign website, he list

allegations, at this point, right? nothing has been proven in a court of law. but they are terrible murders committed by young boys, 15 and 17 years old. so for these mothers to do this, heartbreaking. >> what type of charges will they face? >> i think they will, based on the terrible crimes, when we talk about little autumn, the boys there are 15 and 17. so they are close enough that they can go into court and ask permission of the judge to transfer them into the adult system out of the juvenile court system. and because of the terrible crime, they actually lured this little girl there, because she was into bikes. she had a bmx bike, so they lured her there because they wanted it. there was what we call aggravating circumstances in the murder. and we know the allegations in the ridgeway case is sadly, the little girl was dismembered, not found intact. so again, aggravating circumstances, they will seek to try them as adults. >> terrible, one woman in louisiana said she was set on fire by white supremacists, but now, police say she actually inflicted the injuries herself. she was in
